“‘Somehow Someway’ is all Night Ranger. It not only captures the spirit of our live shows but also is the essence of who we are and who we have been for the last 35 years…a kick ass American rock and roll band…case closed,” says Jack Blades, bassist and vocalist.
Adds Kelly Keagy, drummer and vocalist, “the song “Somehow Someway” is an up-tempo rocker with an infectious, big guitar lick. Take caution while you’re driving in your car, you may find yourself going WAY over the speed limit. Check it out!”
“Our new single, ‘Somehow Someway’ is a rockin’ barnburner up to the standards of our first single, “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me”. This could be a great song to perform live and add to our setlist….Enjoy!!” encourages guitarist Brad Gillis.

Night Ranger truly epitomizes the sound of the 80’s, while at the same time transcending it. Since their reunion in 1996, they have brought their guitar heavy, melodic brand of hard rock into the 21st century with their unparalleled talent, energy, and creativity.
The new album, Don’t Let Up was self-produced by the band.
“The Don’t Let Up album is the result of five musicians living and breathing rock ‘n roll 24 hours a day. 35 years on and Night Ranger is once again ready to let the fans know “It’s Only Rock and Roll, but I like it,” says Blades of the new album.
Keagy adds, “Working on the material for the new album Don’t Let Up was a great experience once again. I always look forward to creating music with Brad, Eric, Kerri, and Jack. I’m really looking forward to playing some of this material for the fans. It rocks!”
“I’m looking forward to the new Night Ranger studio effort Don’t Let Up as it’s always a pleasure releasing new material to keep the bands creative flow. As typical for NR, we have all the elements that made us popular in the first place, including twin lead vocal tradeoffs with Jack and Kelly and dual guitar harmonies and solos with my new partner in crime, Keri Kelli. We’ve stacked the deck again with up tempo driving rock songs, mid tempo tunes and a few acoustic ballad tracks. We’re hoping this new album will be added to your existing Night Ranger catalog!!!” enthuses Gillis.
